Hi, this is my 1st post. :) My bobbins for my machine are pretty inexpensive so I try to have a bobbin for each spool of thread I use. I tried to think of the best way for me to keep all of them organized. I have 2 June Tailor thread racks full of thread and sorted by color. Since I found the pegs are too short to put the thread spool on and then the bobbin on top of them and didn't want to add something for an extension, it fits perfectly fine to put the bobbin on the peg and then put the spool on top of the bobbin, on the same peg!

Nichole, this is exactly what I do. Imagine: two geniuses on one website! ;-) Works like a charm, doesn't it?

I wrote this on another review but, if you don't mind, I will add it here. If the peg is too short, I use a cut down drinking straw to lengthen it. That way if I have wound 2 bobbins or have two spools of the same color, they will both fit on the peg. I think it is a great idea to keep the threads together. Thanks for writing this.
